* ''ComicBook/TheSimpsons'': One Treehouse of Horror issue has pod-people taking over Springfield, and they manage not only to get Krusty, but the entire production staff of Itchy and Scratchy, so instead of mindless violence, the show consists of Itchy and Scratchy watching a wall dry (and commenting on it).

* ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}''
** Jon's rural brother loves watching his clothes spinning inside the washing machine.
** Garfield also finds the idea of CowTipping moronic.
** Jon's family is also excited seeing a white mouse. Garfield remarks: "These people need a TV."
* ''ComicStrip/TheFarSide''
** A pre-television family is sitting on and around a couch, all staring at a blank wall.
** Another one shows cavemen trying to play RockPaperScissors before scissors and paper were invented. Every round they play ends in a tie.
* In a ''ComicStrip/{{Zits}}'' comic strip, Walt talks about leaving {{Woodstock}} because it was raining and going to paint his grandmother's kitchen (which he seems to have preferred).
